Despatches have l»ecn received from the duke of Wellington, which follow : La Catti:r, June 22. We have oontinued in march on the left of the Sambre since I wrote you. Marshal Blncher crossed that river on the 1.9th, in pursuit of the enemy, and Loth armies entered the French ter ritory yesterday; the Prussians by Heaumont, and the allied army,, under my command, by lla vav. The remains of the French army have retired »pon Laop. All accounts agree in stating, that it is in a very wretched state : and that, in addi tion to its losses in battle and in prissners, it is losing vast numbers of men by desertion. The soldiers quit their regiments in parties and return to their homes ; those of the cavalry and artillery selling their horses to the people of the country. The third corps, which in mv despatch of the 19*’i T informed your lordship had been de’ach 0 i to observe the Prussian army, remained in the neighborhood of Wavre until the 20th ; it then made good its retreat hy Namur and Dinanl. This corps is the only one remaining entire I am not able to transmit your loruship returns of the killed and wounded in the army in the late actions. It gives me the greatest satisfaction to infirm you, that col. De’ancev is not dead ; he is badly ’wounded, but his recovery is not doubted; and I hop2 will be early. Joxcocht, June 25. Finding that the garrison of Chambray was not very strong, and that the place was not very well cup’plied with what was wanting for its defence, 1 sent It. gen. sir C. Colville there, on the day be fore yesterday, with one brigade of the 4th divi sion. and sir C. Crant’s brigade of cavalry, and upon his report of the strength of the place, I sent the whole division yesterday morning. I have now the satisfaction of reporting that sir C. Colville took the town by escalade yesterday e vening, with trifling loss, and from the communi cations which he lias since had with the gover nor of the citadel, I have every reason to hope tha* that post will have been surrendered to a go vernor sent by the king of France to take pos oe'nion of it, in the course of this day. St. Quentin has been abandoned by the enemy, and ia in possession of marsh d prince Bludier ; and the castle of Guise surrendered last night. All accounts concur in stating, that it is impos sible for the enemy to collect an army to make head against us. It appears that the French corps which was opposed to the Prussians on the 18tli instant, and had been at Wav tv?, suffered considerably in its retreat, aiul lost some of its cannon.

A M RMOIS, Upon the ncce**i*it and tbc practicability of hut tiny an esid to the piracies of the Barbery State*. Presented at Vienna, for the consideration ofthe Congress; in August, 181-1, by sir S.dnev Smith, president of the confederation of knights. [Translated from the Levden Political Journal, for the Boston Daily Advertiser.] FIRST FART. While the means of ejecting the abolition of the trade in the Negroes on the wes.e.n coast of Africa are under discussion, ami Rums# is at tempting to extend the benefits of commerce, and of security of person and prooer v to the in terior of that vast continent inhabited in- a peop'e ntihl, industrious awl capable of e-joying n the highest degree the advantages of c'v’. x.-tion, it is astonishing that no attention is given to the northern border of that same c am Yy, inhub te i by piratical Turks, who not only op-jrc.;s the n - lives of their vicinity, but take them by f rce. or purchase them as slaves, to empl .v them in their cruising vessels,to tear from their homes di h nest laborers, the peaceful inhabitants of the shores of Europe. Tills shameful piracy is not only re volting to humanity, but it fet'ers commerce in the most injur ions manner, since no manner can at the present daynav-gate the Mediterranean or even the Atlantic, without fear of be.ng se zed by these pirates, and carried into African slave *7 The government of Algiers is composed of th^ ollicers of an orta or regt. of revol ed .Ian,usuries and soldiers, who do not prete-d even in ap pearance to acknowledge the authority of the Ottoman Porte, which vet does not acknowledge their independence. The dey is always th. t one of the nificers of live orta who is most dist ingu . sh ed for his cruelty. He maintains himself at the (lead of the regency or divan, by enriching h.s adherents; that is by permitting all kinds of vio lence in Africa, and piracies bv sea against the weaker European nations, or (hose whose imme diate vengeance he does not fear. Even the Ottoman flag is not sufficient to pro i tect her Grecian subjec s, and to place them in •ecurity against the attacks of the Algerine cor hsi-i Justly, the dey, either from a caprice of cruelty, or from the barbarous po! cy of destroy ing the commerce of his rivals of Tunis and Tri. puli, has captured the cargoes of some ves-:eU of the Archipelago, and of Egypt loaded w.li corn, which had fallen into his power. I lie Pacha of Egypt in his just arg/*r, arrest c<l all the Algerine* whom lie found in hi* states, and demanded in ra.n a restitution of the cargoes unjustly se.zed by the dev of Alg.er*. T he Ottoman Porte saw with indignation and anger, tliata revolted vassal dared io perm t ..ct* the most outrageous, titc most atrocious against his peaceful subjects, wh.ch impeded a com merce which be more than ever needed, to pay the troops of the P»clus, employed on tiie east ern frontier* of the Ottoman empire, tore* st the Wachabites and other numerous \ abian tnb s, who me constantly by the.r inroads threatening the existence of that tottering government. On the other hand Europe is interested to sup port the Ottom n government, as a recognized sovereignty, and at a power which can restrain me pachas and revolted bets, and prevent them from committing pirac.es I.lie Algiers. Tins interest of Europe is increased by the necoss.tr in wh.ch she is often found, of importing the cum ol the black sea or of the Nile, in one of winch cum tries there is always an abundance, since the un favorable seasons m the north of the Ottoman territory, are always counterbalanced by a good season in the same year in the south, and vice verm. But if a Barbarian, calling himself an independ ent prince, but not recognized as such by the Ottoman sultan, hi* legitimate sovere gn, can, at will, threaten, alarm, and capture the Greeks, and the mariners of the small European states, who alone carry on 4 commerce wh.ch the vessels of the great power*, do not find suffici ently profitable to be pursued, because they can not navigate their vessels at so small an expense; if this audacious chief can, when ho dunks fi., ntcrcept the cargoes of cornd**»tined to Europe, the civilized nations arc by this fact, dependent on a chief of robbers, who to insult them, can augment theird,stress, and eien in a time of scar city, subject them to famine. » Thus tl.« barbarian lias a formidable means of extorting money from the Christian princes j he threatens them, as he has done Sicily, w.th put ting to death those of their subjects who have fallen into their power» his known cruelty, ren dering his menaces very formidable, becomes a means of raising money, from one christ an prince ♦.nsupport a war, wh.ch he has declared aga nsi ano'her ; he may thus put all Europe under con tr.bution, and compel all R:it.ons in the rtum to nav a tribute o bis ferocity, by purchasing ofhim P**cp, a ul the lives of his unfomnia.e slaves. It is useless to demonstrate that such a state of tilings is not only monstrous, hut absurd ; and is n it less an outrage on relig.tjrt, than it is on bu rn nity and honor. Toe progress of l.glit and civilisation must necessarily do it aitay. SB 0X1) PART.

We have v.sited the works at several points— The solt'hera and the inhabitants work with the greatest zeal. Our colleague Buguet, who, as well as myself, was with the brave army under gen.

A hotly of Prussian troops have occupied some of the adjacent villages; we reconnoitred their advanced posts. We met with a number of the national guards and confederates who were practising to become sharp shooters, and fa miliarising themselves with dangers they were eager to encounter. Several of these brave Pa risians, complained that they could not obtain arms and ammunition. We have promised them to inform the executive commission of their wants.
